A story about racism and science.



Title: N-Words

Author: Ted Kosmatka

Length: short story

First Publication: Seeds of Change Anthology, 2008

What the Story is About: From the introduction at Seeds of Change:

As is probably evident from the title, “N-Words” is a story about racism. The subject has long been of scientific interest to Kosmatka; in college, he read every issue of a prominent scientific journal, dating back nearly 100 years, and it changed his whole view of science. “I learned that science is fallible,” Kosmatka said, “and that in the wrong hands, it can absolutely be racist.”

Only audio version currently available online. You can read an excerpt at Seeds of Change, as well as Kosmatka’s afterword to the story.
